The highly anticipated drop from Rick Ross looks like it will be storming the album charts.
The projected first week sales for Rick Ross’ God Forgives, I Don’t suggest that the album will easily annihilate its competitors.
The projected figures predict a first week sales figures of 220,000 copies for the Teflon Don’s latest drop, which will easily push the album into the number 1 spot.
Rick Ross’ previous album, Teflon Don, moved 176,000 opies in the first week of sales back in 2010. Other recent album chart success stories in the world of Hip-Hop include Nas, who debuted at number 1 last week, with his latest LP, Life Is Good, and Frank Ocean, who achieved the number 2 spot with his debut, Channel Orange.
DJ Khaled praised and congratulated Ross on the drop earlier this week, via the MMG vlog. "Eh yo Ross, congratulations. Today is a big day. Historical day. Your album is in stores right now. God Forgives, I Don't. It's another classic. You worked hard. I want you to enjoy your day," he said.
Rockie Fresh also added his word on the matter. "What's good, it's Rockie Fresh. I'm giving a shout-out to my big homie Ricky Rozay. Just dropped his fifth studio album, God Forgives, I Don't. That's in stores now. Make sure y'all go get that. It's definitely a classic, you know what I'm saying? A lot of people don't make it to their fifth album. So shout-out to Ricky Rozay for making it there."
